're stronger when we run america from the bottom up. when people have more money in their pocket. when families have more wealth and people get jobs. and the greatest issue in america today is jobs. and the reason is mom and dad are working, the family is stronger t children are stronger. it all works for a stronger america and stronger communities. that is what mitt romney and paul ryan will give us, stronger families and stronger communities. and it's not theory. i have to tell you ladies and gentlemen if there's anything we need no government today it's people who know how to create jobs. we need that and mitt romney has been a successful job creator and when they attack him those are people that don't understand how to rise america. he's a proven job creator and then he went into government. and he took the state of massachusetts from deficits to surplus, from job losses to job gains. and let's think about his pure leadership capability in those olympics. he didn't lead with a title and he didn't lead with anything other than the ability of a human being to raise the bar of everybody else.
for america. guest: i think he is right on one thing. the fannie mae and freddie mac meltdown was certainly caused by the house in bubble. that has done a great disservice -- was done a great disservice by congress in encouraging lending to those individuals who did not have sufficient downpayment or did not have the wherewithal to guarantee they would be able to pay back their mortgage loans. that certainly created a house in bubble. -- housing bubble. that did start at the end of the bush administration. we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact is, the economy has not improved. we have averaged over 8% unemployment for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $2
or the economy or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact we cannot keep running trillion dollar deficits every year. somebody suggests that maybe the taxpayers should not keep subsidizing every last program. their reckless and idiotic approach threatens our very future. anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that, starting with the president. the election is over, but the economy and fiscal problems of the past several years have only gotten worse. it is time for the president to present a plan that rises above these reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time for campaigning is over. it is time for the president to lead. a little over a week ago, i attended a meeting with the president at the white house that was positive and productive. afterwards, i was confident that all sides were eager to figure out a solution to the challenges. as i've said repeatedly, the only person in am

the accumulation of wealth in america. that is hard to figure out. if you look at what has happened since this recession, the stock market has doubled. that does not sound like socialism to me. we are on the way back. our working people are still struggling. the people at the top have continued to separate themselves from the rest of our society, but the stock market has doubled. do not tell me we are on the way down. we are on the way up. i want everybody who is working people in this country to be carried a long way. that is the difference between our parties. when i decided almost two years ago i would not run for reelection in the senate, one of the first calls i made was to team cain regents -- was to tim cain. i have come to know him. i have come to value his integrity. i have come to listen to his judgment. i have come to believe in his commitment he has made to the principles of fairness and social justice in our country. i urged him to work to become my successor in the united states senate, to work to become senator warner's partner as we continue to pursue the goals i have been

[cheers and applause] america to a better place. we are one day away from a fresh start and one day away from a new beginning. my conviction is that better days are ahead, and that is not based on promises and hollow rhetoric but on solid plans and proven results, and on an unshakable belief of the greatness of the american spirit. [cheers and applause] we can do, if there is anyone who feels that the american dream is fading away, if there is anyone wonders that better jobs and better pay checks are a thing of the past, i have a clear and unequivocal message. america will come roaring back.

that this is what america is all about. and it just makes you proud. and so this is a joyous occasion for me -- something that i have been looking forward to. the medal of honor reflects the gratitude of an entire nation. so we are also joined here today by several members of congress, including both senators and several representatives from staff sergeant giunta's home state of iowa. we are also joined by leaders from across my administration and the department of defense, including the secretary of defense, robert gates, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen. where's mike? there he is, right there. army secretary john mchugh, and chief of staff of the army, general george casey. we are especially honored to be joined by staff sergeant giunta's fellow soldiers, his teammates and brothers from battle company, 2d of the 503d of the 173d airborne brigade, and several members of that rarest of fraternities that now welcomes him into its ranks -- the medal of honor society. please give them a big round of applause. we also welcome the friends and family who made staff sergea
of the foreign workers that america -- facilitate the legal flow of the ford workers that america needs. in the end, it is an issue of big government, government saying that we will have these guest worker programs that are highly regulated, and in some areas, some types of jobs, we will cap with ridiculous quotas that don't meet the needs of the market. what we need is a demand-based desk worker program that allows companies who cannot find american workers to bring before workers that they need, as many as they need. we should not be consent in a sluggish economy like we have right now, because if you have an economy that is not growing, you will not bring as many workers. if you have a booming economy, you will bring more workers. let the market work. in the end, that is the only way we can fix this problem. in terms of legalization, i don't know exactly how what i'm seeing from my meetings in congress, this will be done in a piecemeal basis rather than a comprehensive basis. i don't know if we will get for those who have been here for many years or even for the young un is this docu
ago my father had me in his journey to america. my father came to what he later called the land of opportunity. no friend or family members to make his life here easier in america. there is one thing my father went beyond imagining, and that was believed. belief that here in this nation if you work hard, if you are patient and take responsibility for your own actions it could build your success. a belief that in america you have a chance for dreams and venture your children will have a like you ever had. regardless of who you love, what you worship or what politically keep a hold to, that you have a right to freedom with the restraints or boundaries. this is what my father believed to be the american dream. this is still the american dream. we'll endorse parent -- parents, children, and it would to ourselves to make sure we the american dream of american reality. yet today we live in a time of edon, thesefree o american citizens with pain and without process -- a process. but what we are gauged it will topple wars. they remain to be an issue for national security of civilians in

in america for something that was less liberal than what the networks for putting on the air. so, fox news was born. fox news has been hugely successful. it earns somewhere between $1.10 $0.50 billion a year. -- $1 and $1.5 billion a year. the folks at nbc took a look at what fox has been doing and figure out if they could make news skewing news to the right, if we could make half of that, let's ask you to the left. and so, you have on cable television news that caters to people who consider themselves progressives, news to people who consider themselves conservatives, you have the afternoon radio talk shows, the evening radio talk shows which cater largely to the conservative. you have the late-night comedy show, john stewart, stephen cole there, that tend to cater more to the left. and the end result is the area that has gone more or less of fellow is serious news organizations reporting the important events of the day without any kind of political bias. we have grown up as a nation believing we are entitled to hear news that resonates to the news we already -- to the views we already ho
with the president to talk about america's fiscal problem. i outlined a framework that deals with reform of our tax code and reforming our spending. i believe the framework i have outlined is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness, we could revenue on the table. as long as it is accompanied by a significant spending cuts. we are going to continue to have revenue on the table. it will be income meant for our colleagues to show the american people -- incumbent for our colleagues to show the american people that we are serious. i believe we can do this to avert the fiscal cliff in front of us today. >> this is not the first time we have dealt with these issues. we feel we understand what the problem is. we felt good about what we were able to talk about in the. we have the cornerstone of being able to work something out. we are going to have to difficult some of the things we know are a problem. it is like when we arrive at a point when we know something has to be done there is no more, let's do it some other time. we have a plan and we will move
that latinos don't consider socialism as evil. and in america if you hear comments from right wing radio host and news socialism is considered evil which and in latin america cast ro is very popular. >> host: were you surprised the latino vote hit the highest level in this election? caller: i was expected that. i was motivated to vote even though i'm in a democratic state, i knew obama was going to win here but i was motivated to vote because the way obama was non-niesed with -- from the press, the right wing and calling him names, calling him a socialist and i was very motivated to vote. host: what do the exit polls show motivated latino voters this cycle? guest: it's hard to get to motivation because they don't ask those questions but there are some things clear from the exit polls and reelection polls. one of them which is caller touched on is that for a lot of immigrants in particular, the latino immigrants, some of the rhetoric that republicans use about free markets and individualism doesn't ring right. they have a different cultural tradition. port reek can voters obama healthcare plan

importantly, when we talk about paying their fair share, when is america as a whole paying its fair share, mr. speaker? when is america paying its fair share but the federal government is spending too much anyway. middle class america, 46.3%. that's middle class america. that's $35,000 a year you are earning. and your federal government and state government hit you for a combination of 46% of every dime. what incentive is that to go out and work longer and harder? 46%. 57 over here. 57. we all know small businesses create all the jobs in this country. that's why we are so worried about this tax proposal because while this is already 57% over here, mr. speaker, the president wants to raise it another 3 to almost 60%. 60% of every dime earned by family-owned businesses, the president wants to take back to washington, d.c. i'm in favor of a balanced approach. i'm committed to fairness in american society. but, mr. speaker, i ask you, is the problem that taxes are too low or is the problem that spending is too high? what better than class warfare, mr. speaker. we are better than saying we are goi
in america, said to be competitive we have to get at that. this is going to be a really difficult exercise, and if you are combining it with cutting entitlements and defense and other domestic programs to get budget passed, even over a 10- year period, i just think it is a bridge too far, but maybe i am wrong, and i hope i am wrong, and it could be, if they really get ambitious and they have got people really intellectually into this the, it could be an important part of a grand bargain. >> i think one of the most important things is what is the attitude of people in washington, and the business community and elsewhere about where this economy is. some people have argued we are just in the cycle and it will come all back. there are a lot of us you think we're in a different place in our history, in this economy, and we have to take much more seriously the allocation of our resources and the impact of that tax code on investment and consumption in this country if we are going to have a piper the economy. that argument -- a vibrant economy. that would lead you to begin to this is much more s
will be the shade of blue you can accept. i think what americans want is for us to look at america as a marriage. the democrats and the republicans are the spouses and the country is the family. what you learn in a marriage is you have to listen to the other spouse. you have to understand what the other spouse's the point is even if you disagree with that. if you care more about the family and yourself, then you have to make accommodations to authentically response to the other person's deepest desires and aspirations, even if it would be discomforting to you. we will have a rebuttal -- we will have a real bipartisanship when we can have red and blue come together and debate about the shades of purple understanding they will not get everything they want. until that happens, we will only be talking about false unity. civility will continue to decrease and political war we will continue to have.

. phones, inose of the was cell turn them off. why this topic? the vast majority of what we do in america k-12 is done by public institutions. it is done by institutions run by states. and a lot of other work including most charter schools are run by nonprofit. then there is a substantial slot of activity that is for profit. they run schools or colleges. they sell everything from pencils to paper to textbooks to curricula to school systems. we do not often think about that. we do not often think about the upside or downside. that is what we want to get into. for instance, our friend at parent revolution said when speaking about the apparent trigger that there is a need to regulate. we need to think about where to draw the lines. they choose not to encourage that for profits be permitted. they believe the introduction of a new stockholder group, a shareholder seeking profit, will make the public school system less oriented toward putting children first. that is the question period does allowing folks to operate for profit cause us to be less likely to put students first? that is today's conv
, everyone. we just had a meeting with the president to talk about america posted fiscal problems. i outlined a framework that deals with reforming our tax code and reforming our spending. i believe the framework that i have outlined in our meeting today is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness, we have put revenue on the table as long as it is accompanied by significant spending cuts. we are going to continue to have that on the table to show the american people that we are serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal dilemma. i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff. >> this is not the first time we have dealt with these issues. we feel we understand what the problem is. i feel very good about what we were able to talk about in there. we have the cornerstones to work something out. we both will have to give up some of the things that we know are a problem. it is like when you arrive at a point where we all know something has to be done. there is no more let us do it some other time. we will do it now. we feel
of america. then the question of this in the country is, is it going to go toward a european-style social democracy or is it going to go more toward traditional conservative populism of a jackson or a reagan. certainly, when a country manages to deal with such a deadlock or to change the direction, it comes only through presidential leadership. it doesn't come through any other means. so, you've got a lot of red here, and that may be a good harbinger for your party but it does not say anything about how the country is going to move forward in terms of what you promote. so, given all of that -- if you buy any of it -- to what extent do you see any way in the world that the next four years will be anything other than a continuation of the last four, -- struggling, muddling through, kicking the can down the road and not really dealing with the fundamental problems of america? >> 3 very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts -- before and after the 2010 election, just as the clinton administration was also two parts. they never talk about -- the talk about the last

energy, which will attract new companies and high- wage jobs for america. it is a plan put americans back to work, including veterans, rebuilding our infrastructure, and it is a plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. our work is made that much more urgent because at the end of this year we face a series of deadlines that require us to make major decisions about how to pay our deficit down, decisions that will have a huge impact on economies and the middle class, both now and in the future. last year i worked with democrats and republicans to cut $1 trillion in spending that we could not afford. i intend to work with both parties to do more, and that includes making reforms that will bring down the cost of health care so we can strengthen the programs like medicaid and medicare for the long haul. but as i have said before, we cannot just cut our way to prosperity. if we are serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue, and that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that is how we did it -- [applause]
occasion on which we have had this lecture. the heritage foundation vision is to build an america where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourished. to help achieve this vision, the center launched the preserve the constitution series, which is an annual lecture series to inform and -- inform citizens on topics related to this constitution. the series promotes the protection of individual liberties, property rights, free enterprise, constitutional limits on government. we've been able to feature some of the nation's most respected judges, legal scholars, lawyers, and policy analysts. the marquee event is tonight's program. the namesake of tonight's lecturer became the youngest associate justice ever to serve on united states supreme court when he was appointed by president madison in 1812. he made a significant mark on american law in his 33 years on the bench, but his greatest contribution is is renowned commentaries on the constitution. justice story a famously and correctly declared "a constitutional government is addressed to the common sense of the people and nev
